Raquel Welch is the SEXIEST 73-year-old EVER

Holy smokes, I can't believe I am about to say this, but Raquel Welch is a total GILF, a grandmother-aged woman many would like to ... well, you get the picture. Leave it to a Latina to turn ageism in Hollywood on its head. We don't have to get into the whole ageism thing in Hollywood do we? We can agree that youth is exalted and after 40 most women in show biz become less than sought after, right? It's been covered by others, right? Well, Doña Welch is having none of it. She's fine like wine and just gets better with age. Don't believe me? Wait until you see what she wore to a pre-Emmy bash!

Welch attended the "Variety & Women In Film" pre-Emmy party on Friday, September 20. She WOWED in a form fitting leopard print dress that showed off her still stunning curves.

I love that Welch OBVIOUSLY takes care of herself. I love that she flaunts her beauty at 73 and carries it all off with dignity and class. She is an inspiration and a reminder that beauty is not exclusive to the young.

She also does not look like she is trying to be anyone other than herself. She seems to inhabit her body in the present and she knows how to dress in a way that flatters her and makes me want to look that good when I'm in my 70s. Shoot ...  to be perfectly honest, I want to look like that now. The woman is decades older than me and if you put us side by side in a "who wore it best" sort of photo challenge, I have no doubt that all votes would go to Welch.
